Yeah definetly depends on the tire. Also depends on how hard you push them, I have Pilot Pures on my bike (190/55 Rear) and on the street i run them at 32/32 and they feel perfect one they get warmed up a little. I dont like the feel when they are harder.

Consult the manufacturer. On a forum your gonna get a thousand different answers with just as many reasons. The manufacturer made them, and they have a vested interest financially in your satisfaction.

Yep. Also some tires it seems to vary a bit depending on the temperature outside. I know what I usually ran in my Michelins, my Bridgestones don't like. Heck if you arent sure, set them high like oem which is like 38/42 or something like that, then ride for a bit. If you dont like it, drop them both 2psi and ride some more. Rinse and repeat till you and the bike are happy.

Thanks guys. Oem is 42psi which is incredibly hard, so I was curious. I run 36/38 which feels pretty good.
